Ever since I opened the March Paper Pumpkin kit, I've been addicted to this color combo: Bermuda Bay, Cucumber Crush, and Soft Sky. I've just never been brave enough to pair up Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay - but they totally work! Thank you Paper Pumpkin!
I've actually had some of these supplies sitting out for a few days. I was going to use them to make some "Congrats" cards for some of my Stamp Sorority Team but I had absolutely no mojo last weekend. Can you relate? So, as I was getting all of my stamping supplies out to in hopes of stamping a Saturday away, I started to put leftover supplies away so I could have a clean work area. Well, that Cucumber Crush polka dot paper called to me. AND...since I'd just written out all of my April birthday cards (yep, I've addressed my April birthday cards already and it's only April 2nd), I knew I needed to replenish my birthday card assortment for May.
Now, if you just recently had a birthday this year and didn't receive a card from me, I didn't forget about you. I'm FINALLY getting around to joining the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement in April. I've had tons of good intentions for a couple of months, but never got off my butt. SO...hold me to it! I WANT to send more cards! If you have a birthday in May, maybe today's card will show up in your mailbox!
I'll give you a little hint....you know how Facebook tells you when your friends have birthdays on their birthday so you can wish them a Happy Birthday? Did you know you can go into Events and see all of the upcoming birthdays for the week or month or year? Yes! You don't have to be blindsided by a friend's birthday on the actual day. You can plan ahead! SO....if you're my friend on Facebook and your birthdate is public information and I know your address, I have every intention of sending you a card! Granted, if we're not friends on Facebook or you don't publish your birthdate (I don't) or I don't have your address - send it to me! I'd love to add you to my list!
So....back to today's card. It's fairly straight forward (I think). I stamped and punched a bunch of balloons (ha! no pun intended). The one supply you might not recognize is the Cucumber Crush Baker's Twine. Just like the stamp sets that come in the Paper Pumpkin kits, there are usually embellishments that are unique to Paper Pumpkin - and in the March kit, there was some yummy Cucumber Crush baker's twine AND Cucumber Crush pearl-like accents!
